Patient Comfort

There are times when we give patients a prescription which they could see clearly with but are not comfortable.  Their eyes may feel tired with them or they may get headaches.

Sometimes we have to look at the old prescription and modify the change we gave them.  Sometimes there is a correction for astigmatism that makes the patient see clearly but causes a warpage in their vision.  In that case, we either reduce or remove the correction for astigmatism.

There are a host of other types of prescriptions which we measure on the patient during the examination that the patient can’t tolerate. We also find that when the patient has been wearing contact lenses only for a long time and wants to get spectacles, there could be trouble adjusting to the glasses.
